Again this year, Owen Ash and Charlotte are collaborating to bring you Advent Practices for this season of Holy Waiting. Here, you will find a weekly reflection and meditation to listen to. Through the season, we will offer mini practices for you to explore in your own life.
May you know the Peace that come in the Stillness of Holy Waiting.
With Love & Hope, Charlotte and Owen
First Mini Practice (for December 1): As we head into the first day of December, we recommend that you find a place outdoors to spend a few minutes just sitting. We often call this mindful outdoor practice a “Sit Spot”. Find yourself a spot that you can come to daily. Maybe a nice chair on your deck or a seat beneath a favorite tree.
Maybe it’s a spot on your front steps…choose a spot that feels right for you. Maybe it’s right out in the elements. Maybe it’s a little bit more sheltered and protected. Feel free to bring along a thick blanket or sleeping bag to cozy up in.
Choose a spot and commit to sitting in your spot at the same time each day for at least five minutes until Christmas or until the end of December or until January 6th. See what happens as you settle into the experiences that come. Just Sit. Be. And let Be.
